A Tea and Read Mystery #3
Callie Aspen and her Great-Aunt Iphy run the delightful shop Book Tea, with her aunt’s mouth-watering treats and the best tea and coffee in town. Although Heart’s Harbor, Maine is not exactly a huge place.
Callie is still working to save Haywood Hall and with Valentine’s Day approaching it’s the perfect time for a different type of party. Turning the Hall into a place full of hearts and special books, music and even a book appraiser who has volunteered his time to come.
But from the start, there is a lot of tension. People are acting oddly. One of their singers backed out and the replacement has caused Iphy quite a bit of anxiety.
When the book appraiser is found dead, everyone is under suspicion and while she can’t explain it to Callie, she has to prove that the man accused is innocent. With Ace already reminding Callie she can not get involved, we know she will.
This is the third in this series and was not my favorite. Callie seemed wimpy and her aunt came off as really rather mean. For me, this one fell flat.
